Firefighters support Lindstrom

Lt. Michael CraigBreckenridge

I am writing in support of Gary Lindstrom for Colorado House of Representatives. Gary has been a tireless public servant in the Colorado High Country for 30 years. As a Summit County commissioner he worked continually on many issues to improve our quality of life.Gary is an advocate for improving our economy, education and health care. I know him personally, and have never known anyone with more integrity, or who is more civic-minded than Gary. Through his background and knowledge of emergency response and firefighting work, we have benefited from his help in acquiring our Summit County Fire Training Facility.The mere mention, in his opponent’s radio ads, that Gary doesn’t support the emergency services is absurd. The emergency services of Colorado have never had a more ardent supporter than Lindstrom. I find it erroneous that Heather Lemon’s radio ads state that she will work for affordable health care. Yet when asked about her proposals for health care at candidate forums, all she can say is that she is in favor of medical savings accounts. She also says she will work for better education. Since she has no track record on this, or any other issue, we have to look at the political party that she has chosen to affiliate herself with. Unfortunately, that is the party that is responsible for the dismal lack of funding for education in our wonderful state.Don’t be fooled by slick advertisements paid for by wealthy Front Range interests. The clear choice on Nov. 2 is Lindstrom.
